Spoiler gas struts....again.....sorry!
Ive just got a big spoiler. Now ive searched on here and lots of forum members say you need the heavy duty struts but do you really? Its not that im tight but....... erm.....well actually it is that! They are quite pricey but I will get them if I have to.
However having looked at the boot hinges it seems quite easy to modify THEM to limit opening rather than the struts therefore taking the strain of the strut ends. That way in the unlikely event of them breaking the wing would still not hit the screen.
So the question is this. Has any one modded the hinges to do this and how did you do it. i have an idea but someone might have a better one!!!
If i decide to get the metal ones, wheres the cheapest place. I found a place on the web from a link on here that supplies just the metal end pieces to replace the plastic ones very cheaply...anyone done that?
